Max Duffett & Sons is a family run business that has been serving St. John's and the Northeast Avalon since 1946 and is one of the oldest boom truck companies in St. John's.

Founder Max Duffett began the business by taking over a small trucking company that dealt mainly in delivering goods brought in by the railway, before the advent of containers.

Ernest (Bud) and Graham, Max's two sons, soon joined their father and in 1971 expanded the business by purchasing their first boom truck and slowly started to move their focus into that aspect of business.

This successful partnership became incorporated in 2002.

Today the next generation of Duffetts manage this 100% Newfoundland-owned and operated business. Graham's two sons, Geoff and Greg, and Bud's daughter, Nancy, are continuing the success of this long-standing, family enterprise.

After more than 65 years, Max Duffett & Sons pride themselves on running a prosperous business that has withstood the test of time.
Our employees are friendly, knowledgeable, and safety-conscious, because half of them are a part of the Duffett family! We are a proud family business delivering exceptional and professional service.
